*These are pretty straightforward matchups where you can go really aggressive provided you know when to put out harass, these champions are the ones you want to harass real hard the first few levels to zone them out so they won't have an advantage over you even if they have a stun or gap closer like
because if you have equally full health and equal farm, you can get bursted down quickly. Once you build up an advantage early you should be able to dominate the lane.
One of the highest single target bursts post-6, I consider this matchup a medium difficulty since it's very easy to CS with her Q and avoid a lot of your aggression compared to other melee matchups, if you can't build an advantage early she will burst you down after she gets her ult. With natural sustain, this poses a fairly even matchup for Teemo.
The difference between Cho'gath and Singed is that Singed is a free farm melee champion. In the first few levels Cho'gath's spells can be very mana consuming, but if he hits one Q for a gank you're basically finished even with flash, be careful of early ganks since Teemo is very squishy early on. If Cho'Gath ever gets a lead, he can show aggression and hurt you really bad even with just a W+R combo.
Many people might think Teemo is the ultimate counter to Darius. In some cases this might be true but let's not forget the insane amount of burst damage Darius does even without a substantial amout of AD. You CAN very easily dominate the lane pre-6 but if he ever gets a pull on you he can out damage you and slow you so you can't kite,
is a must have against him and try to bait him to use his W without getting caught. A very dangerous thing about Darius is that he can Flash then W making it really hard to dodge, only if you build enough health to survive his initial combo then you can win the trade.
The King of The Base Damages. Jarvan can be an extremely hard lane if he ever gets an early lead, two
is just enough to oneshot you with his combo, however his E+Q combo can be predicted since it takes a small channel time for both of his spells to cast, it is very difficult to get out of a gank if he hits his spells, because the thing about Jarvan is that he doesn't need to build that much AD to deal a good amount of damage, so even if you shut him down a bit, he can catch up if you ever do the slightest mistake.
Jax is one of those champions that still deal a ton of damage even though he's like two levels behind, his late game is 10 times superior to yours in a 1v1 fight, especially after he gets a slow proc like
which makes it really hard to kite him along with his gap closing Q and stun. Jax is a lot different compared to
because it takes a lot more time for Irelia to catch up after Teemo gets a lead.
Same attack range when Jayce is in cannon form, this makes difficult for Teemo to land easy harass. Jayce has a better burst damage and poke with his E+Q combo, from that he can overpower you by landing his spells and backing off while you can only land about 2 autoattacks.
Pretty much the same as Darius, against heavy armor champions like Malphite you have the better option to build AP against him, however this makes a very risky lane since you won't have much sustain and can get harassed real hard if the Malphite decides to go double
, his Q deals a good amount of damage and with the movement speed debuff Malphite can deal free harass as long as he has mana. Plus Malphite doesn't need a lot of farm to be effective, any knockup ability can be devastating so you have to be really careful against Malphite's ult.
AD Nidalee will never be able to out poke you, out burst you, or even out tank you since it is very easy to get an advantage in lane since her auto attacks are nothing compared to yours. Even after level 6 her Cougar form won't help much because it forces her to leap towards you where you can set up your shrooms. AP Nidalee however can be a strong opponent because she can deal a lot of damage with her long range Q, even if she doesn't land her spells, building AP and mana regen allows her E to heal herself up thus allowing her to sustain throughout the lane, by using her W in human form to clear caster minions and her W+E in cougar form to clear the melee minions, Teemo can only land a few auto attacks and at the same time denying Teemo from pushing the lane to be aggressive. Once AP Nidalee gets through the laning phase she can land her Q spears and deal a lot of damage mid to late game, out damaging Teemo if the team continues to take the spear damages.
Even if you shut him down early on, he is almost impossible to kite, he builds health, and that health transforms into AD, being unable to kite him means you can't outplay a lot of ganks plus Olaf has a muchnbetter teamfight than Teemo. Watch out for the Ghost + R otherwise you are safe when he has low mana since Olaf's spells are very spell consuming.
Renekton can actually out damage Teemo in early levels provided that he goes all in, double dash makes it really hard for Teemo to kite, if Renekton lands E, W, a few auto attacks along with Ignite it is a sure kill, so be careful about that aggression. Renekton's sustain from his Q makes it easy to clear waves under tower so Teemo can't harass him that much while he takes CS. Plus, too much base damage.
A very rare pokemon, despite the nerfs, Rengar's kit is still a force to be reckoned with. Similar to Renekton, you need to be careful against Rengar's surprise aggression, after you hit 6 you can put more shrooms in lane that usual so he gets the jump on the trap.
You need to be careful when she uses her spells, if she gets the stun on you after she dashes with E, it would be very difficult to win the trade, try not to kite while she is dashing towards you , run away till Riven gives up or wastes her spells to get to you, then start retaliating, the distance Riven travels with her spells can cause her to overextend and hurt her really bad.
Free farm lane. You can't force him out after he gets
. Alternatively he can't force you out either, if he over-commits though you will definitely win the trade.
this bitch can hurt you really bad if he ever gets any of his spells on you, don't try to harass him after level 2, if you do he can simply run to you, fist you up the air and that's half of your health gone. try to avoid trades because he will oneshot, until you get a
, better stay safe than sorry.
Fiddlesticks is a rather unconventional laner because it is horrible for him to take CS, but with his kind of kit he can out-trade and out-sustain you any day, even if you Ignite him you still take a crap ton of damage, his Drain is in a really low cooldown so be very careful that you do not engage a fight against Fiddlesticks, also be sure to ward the side brushes and set up shrooms in lane to prevent Crowstorm from fucking you over.
Oh my gawd Lee Sin is probably one of the most annoying and overpowered champions. If you are to 1v1 him in a trade be sure to dodge all of his spells otherwise he will kill you. Try to build your advantage by autoattacking him when you know he doesn't have his Q up, and do not situate yourself inside the enemy minion wave because he can W to that minion and EE and QQ and you will QQ as well.
Besides oneshotting you at level 4, Pantheon can also towerdive you even if you have 10 shrooms under your tower, his Q outranges your auto attacks, having a whopping 4 second cooldown with the 10% CDR from
that's a whopper of 200 burst damage every 3.6 seconds, not to mention his early crits.
While you can deal a good amount of damage to Rumble when he misses both of his Es, after he gets his ult he can outdamage you, slowing you so you are forced to fight. If he hits any of his electro-harpoons you are destined to die, otherwise it would be a fairly even matchup since you can slow him down with your shrooms as well.
Must build a
against him, shrooms won't work against him, try to free farm as much as possible because harass won't do much against him, Yorick's not a hard counter to Teemo but he pretty much shuts down any early aggression, then build tanky, then kill everyone 1v5.
